Christmas Song Inspired

The Sisterhood's new challenge begins today and the title is "Christmas Name That Tune". The idea is to make a project that was inspired by a favorite Christmas song. I have 2 cards to share with you, because I have so many favorites. My top favorite is "Silent Night" which inspired me to use this stamp by Stampendous called "Sacred Silhouette". The verse inside says "Silent Nght, peaceful morn, joy to all, Christ is born!" on a stamp by Wordsworth. The blue cardstock was purchased at Hollo's paper store and has flecks of white that look like snow. I heat embossed with gold embossing powder and framed the image with gold metallic cardstock. Then I tied gold metallic ribbon as an embellishment.

 My husband wasn't too happy when I walked around the house singing, "Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow", from the beginning of November until mid January, because we had more snow than we have had since my daughter's were in school. My youngest daughter graduated from high school in 2003. Eventually, he told me I had to take down the snowmen and quit singing that song. (I guess he didn't want snow to last until Summer.)

Here are the details for my second card:

White cardstock was used for the base and the designer paper is by DCWV. I found the image on Pinterest. My friend, Darlene, let me use two of her Martha Stewart snowfake punches to embellish and I used my SU Bitty Banners Die to cut the sentiment banner. Darlene also gave me some red paper since I didn't have any with me at the time.

This is the Sisterhood's last challenge for the year. We will begin challenges again on January 10, 2015. The sisters are taking a well-deserved rest and spending time with their families. 

What are you waiting for? Stop by the Sisterhood for inspiration and get into your craft room and create. We can't wait to see all of your wonderful work.

Thank you for supporting us this past year. Hope to see you in January.
